With two Premier League fixtures still to play, West Ham United appear to have done enough to not be sucked into the relegation battle, a battle that saw Stoke City relegated yesterday.

Heading to the King Power Stadium, to take on Leicester City, the Hammers knew that a win would be virtually enough to secure their top-flight status for another season.

On what was the hottest day of the year, so far, the Hammers controlled the game and, courtesy of a goal in each half, secured the three points needed.

The opening goal scored in the 34th minute, came from Joao Mario who provided a neat finish from a Marko Arnautovic assist, thereby easing the pressure being felt by the vociferous Hammers support.

The second goal, in the sixty-fourth minute, was the highlight of the game with Mark Noble scoring with a superb volley that gave Hamer, in the Leicester City goal, no chance.

2-0 to the good, the Hammers faithful celebrated in the away end, the gloom had been lifted and now we can all look to finish the season with a flourish and then look forward to next season.
